This recipe calls for draining canned beans and reserving liquid, but I guess you can use soaked or sprouted beans. In a blender or food processor combine garbanzo beans and 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid, the walnuts,basilleaves,oil,lemon juice,salt and pepper. Cover ad process until blended but not completely smooth.(Scrape down side and add additional reserved liquid if mixture appears stiff) Stir in olives. Garnish with crushed red pepper, if desired. Serve as a pate, possibly lettuce leaves.

I was inspired to make this recipe from the Publix GreenWise Market magazine, and I made some tweaks for raw vegans.
